Reese's Minis too pretty to eat
So this is what I have been working on slowly but surely. Ever since the very first time I saw nugget boxes I was hooked. For those of you who don't know what the heck I'm talking about, they are the Hershey Nuggets that can be bought in most grocery stores. Well, some ingenious person thought they would make great gifts all dressed up. I don't even remember where I saw them first, but I thought they were fabulous. There are patterns for just about every size made from cardstock that you can imagine. Click -> here <- for those. Then I saw these nuggets in tins and again WOW - how cool. Well, Nichole over at Papertrey ink made the PERFECT stamps to stamp on labels to gussy up these fab bits of candy and along the way, I know that I saw somebody cover up the tops of mints or the Reese's peanut butter cups too.
So... my project is born. I love my new set "Women of Life" from Papertrey and thought they would be perfect stamped and cut out. These are one of my favorite color combos.
Cardstock: Stampers Choice (white) - Papertrey, Hollyhock, Indian Corn Blue (CTMH)
Ink: Hollyhock, Indian Cornblue, Goldrush Garden Green (CTMH)
Stamps: "Women of Life" (Papertrey ink), "Kindred Spirits" (butterfly) - CTMH
Other: Rectangular Nestablities scallops and plain, paper piercer, cricut (scallop circles)
Thanks for stopping by.
